Students at the Oberlin High School were reportedly overpowered by the anointing after receiving a “Word” from a teacher during the school’s General Assembly this morning.
According to acting principal of the school, Antoinette Gray, the teacher was given an opportunity to share the “Word” with another teacher.
“Based on my humble opinion during the worship some students were overpowered by the anointing and started to worship aloud as well, while a few others had to be taken to the nurse because they could not control themselves and a few had also fainted,” she said in a letter addressed to Susan Bloomfield-Smith, Acting Regional Director at the Ministry of Education.
She said some students became afraid. The nurse, other teachers and parents on the compound tried to console the children.
School was dismissed at 10 a.m. because of, “the complexity of the situation and the fact that some students were unsettled.” Only students on the PATH programme were allowed to remain on campus to facilitate them receiving lunch.
